Kill me Quickly **** (great way to start the album off when the beat drops halfway through the song its amazing)
A Subtle Dagger *** (good, short song one of the hardest on the album)
See You in the Shallows ***** (one of my favs on the album great overall song everything fits in perfectly)
Betrayal is a symptom **** (good song starts very hard but has great lyrics, very poetic)
Deadbolt ***** (Oh my God! this is like the best song ever, definitely the best on the album, but that just says the quality of the album, words wont do it justice so just buy the album even if its just for this song it would be standout on any album trust me!)
In Years to come **** (First hearing this was the one song i probably disliked the most but it has a will grow on you and now i think its a great song)
The Red Death **** (The intro is off the hook!!! as is the solo halfway through the song, this is Teppei at his best)
A Living Death Upon Dead Minds ***** (Wow!!! if it wasnt for Deadbolt this would a standout song of the album along with See You in the Shallows.Read more ›
Power pop (similar to geek rock) - Promise Ring, Weezer, etc.
Emo - Sense Field
Post-hardcore - Thursday, Texas is the Reason
While Thrice tends to capture a fair portion of the post-hardcore sound, I would say they're closer to punk and indie rock. "The Illusion of Safety" represents this amalgam with speed, aggression, and melody, perhaps more than the other two major releases, "The Artist in the Ambulance" and "Idenity Crisis".
Thrice separates themselves from other bands of these genres with their intricate strumming and patterns, ranging from the metal breakdown near the end of "To Awake and Avenge the Dead" to the bluesy intro of "So Strange I Remember You". The songs on this album are cleaner and catchier than those on the more hardcore-laden "Identity Crisis", while being less mainstream and metal-sounding than "The Artist in the Ambulance". Overall, my favorite release by Thrice, as it starts strong, ends strong, and kicks rear everywhere in between.

This album is so much better that Identity Crisis. I loved it mainly because of the talent involved. Read more
